Parents/Carers

This section is full of information which hopefully answers questions you may have as a parent/carer. Please let us know if you think we have missed any information or any other questions which you like answers to.

As a parent/carer, you might want to help out with one of our sections or become involved in the Executive Committee or you might have other ideas on how you could help.

DID YOU KNOW?

OUR leaders are all volunteers who give up their own time for OUR scout group.

OUR leaders typically volunteer their own time in the following way to help develop YOUR children:

  • Sectional meetings – two hours a week over 42 weeks – 84 per year
  • A couple of weekend camps – 96 per year
  • Planning and District meetings – 36 per year
  • Training- 6 per year
  • Day trips – three per year – 36 per year
  • Admin/planning – two hours per week – 84 per year

Which means that OUR leaders give up on average 342 hours a year of their time to help your child, that’s 42 working days!

Could YOU spare a couple of hours, a couple of times a term to help them help YOUR child.
